is that not the case? >> well, we understand historically that keeping the races apart is wrong. what marriage is about is bringing together the two opposite halves of humanity for a deep social good. that's why as president obama himself said, there are people of good will on both sides of this issue. what we need the supreme court to do is not try to short circuit this debate. we need to keep the debate alive. americans on both sides of this issue are deeply invested in this debate. we don't need a 50-state solution presented by the supreme court. when our democratic institutions are capable of handling the issue. that's what the court will decide. whether it's going to impose a redefinition of marriage among all americans or whether we're going to be allowed to continue to work on this together state by state. >> so not a roe v. wade decision is what's being argumented, don't make a decision that then sets the stage arguing four years to come. >> look, candy, this case -- the case before the united states supreme court both in terms of proposition 8 is really about fundamental right. >> and the defe

obama a majority passed this. they say yes it is constitutional. we need to make a distinction between marriage between traditional couples, because those produce children and it's important to make the distinction for that reason only. the opponents of prop 8 who have prevailed in both the lower courts say, allowing same-sex couples to get married doesn't do anything to traditional couples, it doesn't weaken marriage, it doesn't affect their marriage at all. it's more inclusive and there's no good reason not to do it. slightly different arguments on wednesday in the defense of marriage case, the federal law passed 17 years ago that says the federal government won't recognize any same-sex marriages even in the states where it's legal. the federal government says it has to have its own definition of marriage. the opponents say that doesn't make any sense constitutionally, either. >> prop 8, about the right to get married. d.o.m.a. about federal benefits when married. >> exactly. >> interrelated, but not the same issue. >> yes, because even if the supreme court says that prop 8 is struck
for this opportunity and we will seize it as long as we seize it together. >> president obama is back in the country today returning his focus to the progressive agenda he outlined in his second inaugural address, on gun control, immigration, marriage equality, the president and the country and seven years ago, 63% of the country supported a pathway to citizenship. this year, that number has jumped nine points. a critical shift in public opinion and is not just immigration. today people are already lining up outside of the supreme court to show their support for marriage equality. this week, the court will hear arguments challenging the defense of marriage act and a ban on same-sex marriage. the court has evolved on this issue dramatically. 17 years ago, only 27% of americans were in favor of same-sex marriage. today, well over half the court supports marriage equality. sometimes change is slow. sometimes it's hard to see. sometimes it gets lost in the daily battles out of washington. but this is real. this is what progress looks like. the president and the country are winning the progressive argume
, spectators are already lining up as the court prepares to hear two cases this week on same-sex marriage. these cases could literally transform the landscape of equal rights in this country. earlier today, president obama addressed a naturalization ceremony for new citizens challenging lawmakers to, quote, have courage when the debate resumes next month. perhaps the most volatile issue facing lawmakers right now, the debate over proposed new gun safety measures. this weekend marked 100 days since the sandy hook elementary school massacre, and gun reform advocates are clearly frustrated with the lack of action from lawmakers. organizers are planning a day of action this thursday with events aimed at reducing gun violence across the country. with the future of an assault weapons ban hanging in the balance, and the future of background checks also uncertain, this week new york mayor michael bloomberg's group, mayors against illegal guns, announced it will shell out $12 million on a tv ad campaign in 13 states. >> for me, guns are for hunting and protecting my family. i believe in the second
there has been such a change. let's not forget barack obama and hillary clinton when running for president not so long ago were talking about civil unions not gay marriage. it is almost astonishing the change but do you take it as a clue she is running? >> i hope so. but i don't know. i think the reason she came out now is very clear. you know, secretary of state, it wasn't appropriate for her to get into the domestic politically -- >> this is the first thing she's come out publicly about. >> obviously the timing is the supreme court is about to do something and it's the right time to say something and something she believes strongly in. as you said, you know, the world is changing rapidly. you know, i remember in the 2004 presidential campaign i worked for john kerry and dick gephardt two great progressives and being for civil unions in that campaign was considered the leading edge. >> it was a big deal then. >> big deal. in 2016 every democrat running for president will be for marriage equality. you know, frankly, i think the republicans as we saw with rob portman last week and the repor
. if you look at the obama administration and the defense of marriage act, first the administration sabotage the case in its pertaining to defend and then abandoning the arguments that had been made previously in legislation. and then failing to adopt the claims made by both parties, it claimed that it had some basis in no longer defending the defense of marriage act at all. and then in california you had governor schwarzenegger and then attorney braun failing to live up to those responsibilities. complications and it may explain why we do not have too much trust in this area. there can be some we're a hypothetical situations down the road. weird, hypothetical situations down the road. but i think in both cases there is ample room for the court to reach the merits. >> paul, what do you think? >> it seems that the minimal expectation of people in this position is that they file the appeal. and therefore, make sure that the case gets up to the highest authority of court to decide the merits of the case. the decision that the obama administration made to continue to enforce doma and al

chambliss doesn't support gay marriage because he doesn't plan on having one. and a crisis somewhere you never believe and the best borrow baptist church gets a new neighbor. first, president obama calls on young israelis to embrace peace. this is "the ed show." as ed would say, let's get to work. it was a passionate appeal for peace. after speaking with palestinians in the west bank, the president took his message to israel, delivering a major speech earlier calling for a two state solution in the middle east. this was the main event of mr. obama's first trip to israel as leader of the free world. the president delivering what the administration called the centerpiece of the visit. the speech wasn't given in front of the israeli parliament where his predecessor spoke at his first trip, given at the convention center before an audience of students. the president's message was clear, peace is possible but in order to secure peace and security for the jewish state, compromise is essential. >> negotiations will be necessary but there's a little secret about where they must lead. two states
the last decade or so that now a majority of the american public believes that same sex marriage should be allowed. we've seen the president, obama change his mind. president clinton changed his mind. hillary rodham clinton came out and spoke about it. republican rob portman spoke about it. and i think, wolf, there's a question here about whether this shift in public opinion is actually going to affect the supreme court. those justices sitting on the bench. when you talk to both sides of the argument, one side says, the side that's for same sex marriage, will say, you know, maybe it will help us because the court won't think it's such a heavy lift to rule in favor of same sex marriage. they won't be going against public opinion and in the way they were against interracial marriage, for example. or on the other side, they say the court will also say, look. it's proceeding in the states. you know, you now have eight or nine states who have approved same sex marriage. public opinion is shifting. let it play out with the voters and the court's not the place to do it. >> they're very conserv
barack obama's parents got married in 1960 in hawaii. so the country changed. and that law is not only unconstitutional now, it's unthinkable. and the question is, is same-sex marriage moving in the same direction? at the moment, it does. but it's certainly not there yet. >> jeffrey, i know you don't like to make predictions about these things, but what do you think is going to happen? do you have any idea? >> well, i think the most likely result is that the court will overturn the defense of marriage act, will say that that law is so discriminatory, it's unconstitutional. the proposition 8 case is a much tougher call. there are a lot more moving parts. they could rule just in california, they could rule for the whole country. they could dodge the issue on procedural grounds. so that one, i'm not even going to venture a guess on. >> all right. again, thank you, jeffrey toobin. >> okay. >>> a well-respected conservative senator, the latest republican to endorse gay marriage. are we seeing the beginning of a shift among republicans? we're asking the former chairman of the log cabin repub

an interest in marriage because it needs men and women to commit to each other as husband and wife and then take responsibility for their children as mothers and fathers. president obama has spoken movingly about the importance of fathers and how he wished his father would have been involved in his life and how that inspires him to be a good father to his own daughters. >> what's wrong with two fathers? >> how can father be essential when it makes fathers optional. it's a father and a mother. mothering and fathering are a phenomenon and children do best when they have a mother and father. that's what marriage does. >> i'll let you react to that point. >> first of all, these talking points ignore that there are hundreds of thousands of children being raised by same-sex couples successfully in this country which is why you have child welfare organizationses that have come out in support of parenting by same-sex couple and marriage because those kids deserve a stable, protected, respected home just as much as kids being raised by opposite sex couples disagree that allowing those child
